Soloist: Nejc Kamplet, piano
Frédéric Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Op. 11
Alojz Ajdič: Taborišče Ravensbrück, cantata
They say that time and Chopin are the only known remedies for healing the wounds of first love. Probably the memory of the songful melodies of one of the most beautiful piano concertos ever written was also carried by one of the internees of the Ravensbrück concentration camp for women and children, where more than forty thousand of Chopin’s compatriots suffered during the Second World War. Four of the Slovenian internees at the camp expressed their suffering in the harrowing songs used by Slovenia’s popular composer Alojz Ajdič as the thematic material for the creation of the cantata Taborišče Ravensbrück (The Ravensbrück Concentration Camp).
The concert is dedicated to the victims of the war in Ukraine.
